The Random - Machete, Tintin, The B-Team, Hellraiser, Green Lantern, Maximum City, Beverley Hills Cop, Easy A, Wolfman Jack, Highlander,

- A script review is out for Robert Rodriguez's Machete spin-off feature film.

- Much like James Bond, Australian fans of Tintin will have to wait longer than everyone else as Spielberg's upcoming film version will be released on December 26th 2011, a week behind the US and well over a month behind Europe.

- Will Ferrell confirms his next project will be Adam McKay’s PG-13 buddy cop comedy The B-Team starring him and Mark Wahlberg as two desk cops, the latter finds the lack of action frustrating - full details

- Horror legend Clive Barker says that Pascal Laugier (Martyrs) will not be directing the remake of Barker's classic Hellraiser - full details

- Jaron Pitts, the man behind that cool fan made Green Lantern film trailer I recently posted, talks about the work to Popdose.

- Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle has acquired the film rights to Suketu Mehta’s 2004 book Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found which Boyle said was a big influence on him while filming the Best Picture winner - full details

- Screenwriter Derek Haas on writing Beverly Hills Cop 4: “Like with the first Beverly Hills Cop, we’re writing a straight up action movie that works as a police thriller, then Eddie Murphy is going to come in later and point out where he thinks he can riff. We haven’t gotten to that point yet.”

- Lisa Kudrow, Alyson Machalka, Thomas Haden Church, Patricia Clarkson, Stanley Tucci, Penn Badgley, Cam Gigandet, Malcolm McDowell and Daniel Bird have joined Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes in the Will Gluck-directed comedy Easy A.

- Dan Fogler (Fanboys, Balls of Fury) talks about a film loosely based on the exploits of legendary 70s radio D.J, Wolfman Jack. “It’s a tall tale - though instead of Paul Bunyon, it’s Wolfman Jack”, says Fogler, who’d play the lead. “The movie starts out like a traditional biopic, but then it turns into a spaghetti western! What happens is – and they’ll kill me for revealing this – near the end, James Brown teams up with Wolfman Jack to fight off Mexicans!"

- The script review for the Highlander remake is out. It doesn't sound too good - "they change a few things, including the ending, but mostly this is the same story with the same characters that we remember from the original. It isn't so much that the screenwriters (Art Marcum & Matt Holloway) are telling a different story, but that they are telling the same story in the wrong way - while all of the major characters from the original are included in the remake mostly as they were, they've been changed in seemingly minor, but truly significant ways that render them all lesser characters.
